I can't believe how simple this was to use

PostedJune 6, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, very effective
Very effective as well, my rear disc had been squeaky and not very 'firm' since new. I treated the brake system with the Fenwick disc cleaner a couple of times - job done.
I would recommend this product wholeheartedly.

Squeaky Clean Brakes!

PostedSeptember 11, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, easy
Cons: too easy to use liberally
This works, simply wet the disk, wait 10 seconds, then "spot blast" any grime away. I found moving wheel spokes to spin disc into position was best, to avoid spraying other parts. Few minutes later, those brake pads gripped like new, with a clean squeak. I wanted to try a disc brake claner having experienced spongy rear brake, couple of times after hosing bike down, cleaning chain, lubing chain etc and finding water spray ineffective.
The solvent can be used as a de-greaser, so unless you plan to clean & relube chain/sprokets, I'd put a guard to protect against misdirected spray. Just as you should protect your disk brakes & disc against lubricating products.
My only gripe was the security tag obscured the instructions on tin, so I spent 10 minutes carefully peeling that off to read the usage.

Works o.k as far as can tell.

PostedOctober 30, 2010
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: low volume content
Ordered this online and picked up at Nottingham store. Delivery to store was quite prompt. However on getting the product home, although quite a large can, it felt as though it was half empty. I didn't have time nor the inclination to return the item and needed to get my brakes up and running so kept it. Seems to work o.k but think any dry degreaser will probably do the same job. Disappointing the amount in can.

Best disc brake cleaner

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
If you want brakes that feel like new every ride this is the cleaner for you. Eliminates all contamination and brake squeal. Brilliant stuff
